Very good fishing and nice place.


Very good place to fish nice surroundings. Definitely recommend it.


Caught a 12 pounder in no time


How big do the fish go can some one give me some details of the deep and farm lake not sure which ones got bigger fish in website hasn't got much info...


had a 17lb 4oz mirror out at swim 2 match lake and a few smaller ones. all on tutti frutti pop ups


Found it busy and felt like I was casting into a pit witch I guess is what it is , very exposed so bring a Bivvy as exposed and bring a lot of pounds for the permit


Went to finish the match lake and there was no swims to much rain (Blanked) no surprise there


Staff were helpful enough , I fished the farm lake ,, there's no designated swims so u can't book a swim in advance for a night fish ,, you have to buy permits to fish from a machine so bring lots of £1 +£2 coins . £12 for two rods for a day and £20 for a night yes £20 worth of change for the machine , nice venue but due to it being backed on to willows farm got plagued with geese , would defo fish there again but can imagine it getting very busy in the summer
